Will The Real Tim Duncan Please Tweet?

4/9/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tim Duncan claims he was booted from his Twitter account ... because he's not the 6'11" NBA star by the same name.

Will The Real Tim Duncan Please Tweet?
The white Tim tells us he got an email from Twitter Tuesday informing him they were shutting down his account because they believed he was trying to "impersonate" the Black, much taller Tim Duncan.

For some reason Twitter had a change of heart yesterday and his account was re-activated.

We reached out to Twitter and we're still waiting for an explanation ... in 140 characters or less, of course.

Um this is really stupid because nba Tim Duncan doesn't even tweet. The White Tim Duncan should get over himself. Sounds like a case of "looking for my 15-seconds of fame." I'm not mad at Twitter - I'm mad at White Tim D!

One more proof that celebrities got it made. And I still do not understand attraction of twitter unless you are huge self-absorbed ahole.
